In recent years, the infrared sauna blanket has become a popular beauty, relaxation and well-being device in the world (especially in the United States), although it has not yet become known in Spain.A sauna blanket uses infrared rays to directly heat the body while you are lying on it, without the need for four walls and a bench, as in traditional saunas. It is a more comfortable and easy-to-use alternative that allows you to wrap your body like a sleeping bag.
The infrared sauna blanket works similarly to a Finnish sauna, both use heat to make us sweat. The main difference is that the sauna blanket is portable and does not require a large space or complex installation, like a conventional sauna. In addition, the infrared sauna blanket offers a variety of temperature options so users can adjust the temperature to their preference and heat tolerance level.
As we have already explained in other articles, some of the scientifically validated benefits attributed to the infrared sauna blanket are improved blood circulation, stress reduction, muscle recovery, improved sports performance and the elimination of toxins from the body, taking care of the appearance of your skin and improving your health.
In short, the sauna blanket is a popular and convenient alternative to the traditional sauna. With a variety of temperature options and the same benefits as a conventional sauna, the infrared sauna blanket is a great option for those looking for an extra beauty therapy, relaxation and well-being in the comfort of their home.
Although we have previously explained how an infrared sauna works, in this article we will show you how an infrared sauna blanket works, and we will give you more details about ours (here you can read how to use a sauna blanket).
How does an infrared sauna blanket work?
Sunlight contains a combination of visible and invisible light, including infrared radiation. This radiation is made up of different wavelengths that are divided into three bands: near (NIR), medium (MIR) and far (FIR). It's a type of electromagnetic radiation that we can't see, but can feel as heat.
When infrared radiation comes into contact with the body, the energy of the waves is absorbed by water molecules and other compounds present in the body's tissues, causing an increase in internal temperature. This increase in temperature is beneficial because it activates the body's natural detoxification processes, improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation and improving overall health.
In the case of our infrared sauna blanket, we use the far band (FIR). The far infrared waves penetrate our body and activate the sweat glands. These glands are a tool that our body has at hand to eliminate toxins. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and has been called "the third kidney" due to its ability to eliminate large amounts of waste through the sweat glands. It is one of the best mechanisms the body has for eliminating toxins.
What materials does our infrared sauna blanket use?
Our infrared sauna blanket is made up of various materials that combine to create a safe and comfortable experience for the user. One of the main materials is non-toxic polyurethane leather, which provides a waterproof layer and protects the blanket from sweat and water damage. In addition, the blanket is covered by a fire-resistant fabric, which prevents the sheets that produce heat from coming into direct contact with the user's skin and prevents it from catching fire.
As for the heating sheets, they sit safely inside the sauna blanket and emit infrared heat when turned on. This element is positioned throughout the blanket to provide full body coverage and even heating. The foils we use are known for having a long lifespan and producing efficient heat.
One of the most important aspects of our sauna blanket, compared to others on the market, is that we have created sheets that produce infrared heat without emitting electromagnetic radiation (EMF - for its acronym in English or CEM - electromagnetic field in Spanish), we will explain it below.
In addition, our sauna blanket has a zipper to keep it closed when in use and thus conserve heat.
What is electromagnetic radiation and how can it affect me?
Electromagnetic radiation (EMF) is a type of energy that moves in the form of waves and is produced by electronic and electrical devices, as well as by the sun itself and other natural phenomena. Although most people are exposed to EMF every day, many don't realize the potential effects it can have on their health.
EMF levels vary by device and source of emission. Devices that emit high levels of EMF include mobile phones, wireless routers, household appliances, and lighting fixtures. Some studies suggest that prolonged exposure to high levels of EMF can have negative health effects, including headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and in extreme cases, cancer.
That is why, in the manufacture of our infrared sauna blanket, we use materials that do not produce EMF. This means that when the blanket is in use, there are no harmful emissions that can affect your health.
Does a sauna blanket really work?
Knowing how an infrared sauna blanket works, you might wonder if it's really useful, right?
Sauna blankets have gained popularity in recent years due to their ability to deliver the benefits of a sauna in the comfort of your own home.
In short, yes, sauna blankets work. They are designed to provide the same benefits as a traditional sauna session, but with the convenience of being able to use it anytime, anywhere.
Infrared sauna blankets emit infrared rays that penetrate the skin and increase body temperature, causing sweating and helping to eliminate toxins and waste. In addition, they can also help improve blood circulation, reduce stress and fatigue, and improve skin.
However, it is important to remember that these are not a silver bullet for health and wellness. It is important to incorporate them as part of a healthy lifestyle, along with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep.
It will help you improve your quality of life
As we have explained in the article, this device uses infrared wave technology to generate heat and stimulate the body to sweat and eliminate toxins. Infrared rays are not harmful to the human body, as they are equal to the spectrum of non-harmful rays from the sun that we experience every day.
In addition, our sauna blanket is designed to be non-EMF, which means there is no electromagnetic radiation that can negatively affect your body.
Incorporating the use of the infrared sauna blanket into your wellness routine can help improve overall health and well-being. It can help reduce stress, fall asleep, relieve muscle and joint pain, as well as improve circulation and the immune system.
Now that you know how an infrared sauna blanket works, you'll understand that it can be an excellent addition to any wellness regimen to improve your overall health, once you try ours you won't be able to put it down.
